the lowdown on rf skin tightening

In aesthetic medicine, radio frequency (RF) is a type of energy commonly used for skin tightening and body contouring. The RF energy is delivered through a handheld device that emits radio waves into the deeper layers of the skin, causing heat to build up in the targeted area, shrinking the fat cells.

This heat causes the collagen fibres (skin-tightening proteins) to contract, stimulating the production of new collagen over time. Radio frequency helps to improve and correct skin laxity, sagginess and texture and can help the appearance of cellulite.

are you a candidate for rf skin tightening?

If you're looking to enhance and reduce volume while addressing mild to moderate skin laxity, wrinkles, and fine lines, this treatment is perfect for you. It's also beneficial for those who have experienced weight loss or pregnancy and are dealing with loose or sagging skin. Radio frequency is also a great choice for those more interested in preventative procedures rather than corrective ones! 

what to expect during your radio frequency treatment at zest

Before any in-clinic treatment, our treatment providers complete a 360-degree consultation. 
Before your first treatment, we start by taking your medical photos. Your treatment will begin by cleansing the treated area, and a conductive gel, oil, or cream will be applied. Depending on your treatment plan, the handheld device may include a suction. 

The procedure will begin with the handpiece emitting heat in circular motions that follow the lymph system. The treatment may feel like a hot stone massage, where heat may gradually build up in certain areas. 

Most people say this treatment feels like little pricks of heat on your skin with a tightening sensation. This sensation is temporarily uncomfortable for some, but we assure you it is totally normal!

how long does a radio frequency treatment take?

The treatment usually takes 20-30 minutes and varies depending on the body part. The treatments can be scheduled anywhere from 2 week or 1 month intervals.

pre and post care for rf skin tightening

Preparing your body is crucial for the success of any treatment. We strongly advise adopting a balanced, healthy lifestyle that encompasses a healthy diet and regular exercise. Additionally, we recommend increasing your water intake, as this is directly linked to the effectiveness of your results

combination treatments

As radio frequency helps address excess fat and improve skin texture, combining it with other treatments can reap great results. Radio frequency can be combined with Microneedling for even more significant skin-tightening benefits!
The time it takes to see results after your radio frequency body contouring treatment will vary from person to person, but most patients see results right after their first treatment. Full body contouring results can take 2-3 sessions to reveal themselves, and long-term results will be visible 6-8 weeks after your last session.
Since RF skin tightening is non-invasive, there is barely any pain associated with it. When you choose a body contouring treatment performed via RF technology, you will feel a warm and tingling sensation with slight pressure as the radio frequency waves target and eliminate the unwanted fat cells.
Your radio frequency body contouring results can last for years if you maintain a healthy lifestyle and stable weight. Of course, your body will still continue to age after your RF skin tightening treatment, and you may experience loose skin in some areas, along with fat development due to your metabolic rate slowing down.

Try to maintain a steady weight with daily exercise and a healthy diet to continue seeing results for as long as possible.
Radio frequency devices use energy to damage and destroy fat cells. However, fat cells can regenerate over time as new ones form. If you gain weight after your radio frequency treatment, the weight may return to untreated areas of the body.

If you have a controlled weight and body fat percentage, you are ready to get an RF skin tightening procedure. The radio frequency will target stubborn pockets of fat that don't go away with diet and exercise alone - but patients must have only mild to moderate concerns.
